Keeping women healthy for generations
to come

YES you can:

  • Shower
  • Bathe up to 36 weeks. Do not go in hot tubs or Jacuzzis.
  • Have dental work (make sure that your dentist knows that you are pregnant)
  • Swim. Do not go in rough water, body surf, scuba diving. No diving, jumping or belly flops. Lap swimming is excellent exercise during pregnancy.
  • Have intercourse unless you have had problems, such as placenta previa, or if it causes pain, bleeding or contractions.
  • Exercise regularly – walking is usually best. If you have been exercising regularly (i.e. running, aerobics, etc.) you may continue on a modified basis for pregnancy. (see exercise guidelines)
  • Travel – up to 35 weeks. Try to empty your bladder every one to two hours and get up to stretch and move around. It is a good idea to let your provider known if you are going out of town. Travel from 35 weeks and beyond is not advised as insurances may deny out of the area deliveries.
  • Paint – make sure that the room is well ventilated.
  • Have your hair colored, permed, straightened, etc. – consult with your stylist as the effect on your hair may be different.
